B&M is set to appoint Kentucky Fried Chicken UK and Ireland managing director Paula MacKenzie as a non-executive director at the business.
MacKenzie is set to take up the role from November 9 and will also join the retailer’s audit and risk and nomination committees.

Prior to becoming managing director of the UK and Ireland, where the business has 900 stores, she held the position of chief financial officer.
B&M chairman Peter Bamford said: “I am delighted that Paula has agreed to join the Board of B&M,”
“She is a highly regarded and skilled leader with an appreciation for all aspects of business. Her current and recent experience in a highly competitive multi-site business and her professional background in finance will bring additional insights and perspectives to our board while our business continues to grow at a significant rate.”
MacKenzie’s appointment is subject to shareholder approval for which an ordinary general meeting has been convened for November.
